In Reply to: Re: Apropos of nothing, I'd like to bring up one thing I REALLY like about sixes posted by Sharlee on March 26, 2002 at 03:53:23:

My guess is they decide after six months of college that they hate it and are quitting. Then procrastination strikes. It takes them years to beat it, but once they do beat it, they feel they HAVE to follow through, even if there's only a few months left to endure.

Question: Why do sixes hate college? I guess the bitchiness, double-talk and overall two-facedness bothers them, combined with the fact that they aren't being paid to endure it.

: : Staying power.

: : Just that they're pretty unlikely to let you down, or make excuses to quit six months into a commitment. If they're good at a creative thing, "burnout" probably won't be a problem, unless it's a physically draining activity.

: : maybe y'all can fill this topic out with examples better than I can.

: ### Yes, 6's will commit to a cause or a person but in their own personal goals, they often don't finish things if there is a change likely as a result of that finishing. I know a few 6's who studied at university up until the last year and then bailed out and never went back. I could not understand that as I would have finished it even if I hated it - at the very least its a qualification you have achieved and in one particular case it affected her whole career and her subsequent earning power as she never had the basic science degree to move into different career streams. I've seen this pattern repeated in a few 6's. Sharlee
